TORO VILLAGRA, Evelyn; MOYA ROJAS, Pablo  and  POBLETE MELIS, Rolando. Social Representations of Teachers and Students about LGBTI People: A Case Study in a Catholic and Secular Secondary School. Rev. latinoam. educ. inclusiva [online]. 2020, vol.14, n.1, pp.37-51. ISSN 0718-5480.

Nowadays we are facing a revitalization of the discussion regarding sexual diversity in the educational context. However, we cannot ignore that the orientations that each establishment has regarding sexual diversity can lead to significant differences when it comes to the beliefs and actions that they carry out in their communities. The research that gives rise to this article aimed at identifying the social representations of teachers and students regarding the inclusion of lgtbi subjects and students in a Catholic secondary school and another secular one in the city of Santiago. Through the application of in-depth interviews with teachers and students, it was established that there are relevant differences between these establishments regarding the way to approach sexual diversity, its visibility and the beliefs that the actors have in this regard.
